We are happy to mail eyeglasses or contact lens orders directly to patients with no shipping charges and are extending prescriptions as needed by request.
For the forseeable future, we are implementing the following measures to ensure that we minimize risk of communicable disease to staff and visitors:
1) As always, all patient contact surfaces with any instruments are sanitized between each patient encounter. In addition, all doorknobs, counters and chairs are cleaned throughout the day.
2) Any frames tried on in our optical are cleaned before being replaced on displays. Only one patient and guest may be present in the optical room at any time.
3) Patients and staff with respiratory symptoms are discouraged from entering our clinic unless dictated by emergency circumstances. These patients are escorted directly to an exam room with all appropriate precautions. We are making every effort to avoid having patients wait in waiting areas and are requesting that no more than one caregiver accompany patients.
4) We have reduced the number and frequency of patient examinations.
We understand the inconvenience to our many patients that these changes will create and look forward to restore access to all services as soon as it is safe to do so.
